Manage Filters for Multiple Elements

When managing filters for a chapter report in SecurityCenter, you can search the report for elements that use certain filters, then update the filters for all matching elements in that report at the same time.

You can use the following filters to search and update: Address, Audit File, Asset, CVE ID, DNS Name, IAVM ID, Repositories, Scan Policy, and Severity.

For example, if you search a report definition for all elements where the Severity filter is set to Info, you can update the Severity filter to Medium for all elements, and add an Audit File filter to the elements at the same time.

To manage filters for multiple elements in a chapter report:

  1. Click Reporting > Reports.

    The Reports page appears.

  2. In the reports table, click the name of the report you want to edit.

    The Edit Report page appears.

  3. In the left navigation bar, click Definition.

    The report outline appears. This outline is, by default, expanded. For more information, see Edit a Report Outline.

  4. In the top navigation bar of the outline, click Find/Update Filters.
  5. In the Matching Filters box, review the list to verify that you want to apply the update to all the listed elements.

    Tip: If you do not want to apply the current update to all the listed elements, it may be more appropriate to manage filters by individual element. For more information, see Manage Filters for a Single Element.

  6. Click Update Filters.

    SecurityCenter applies the updates to the matching elements and returns you to the report outline.

  7. Click Submit to save your changes to the report.
